1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup peeled, shredded Granny Smith apple

Combine cranberry sauce and grated orange peel and set aside. Then combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the egg, milk, and vegetable oil and beat just until moistened. Next fold in the apple. Fill paper lined or greased muffin tins half full. Make a well in the center of each muffin; fill with about 2 tsp. of reserved cranberry mixture. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.

Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over cooled muffins.
